Buddha In The Marketplace
The Commodification Of Buddhist Objects In Tibet
de Alex John Catanese
Sobre o livro
Classical Tibetan Buddhist scriptures forbid the selling of Buddhist objects, and yet there is today a thriving market for Buddhist statues, paintings, and texts. In Buddha in the Marketplace, Alex John Catanese investigates this practice, which continues to be viewed as a form of ""wrong livelihood"" by modern Tibetan Buddhist scholars.
